C. 190,000
D. 207,000
E. 290,000



Selling price of Model X is 140% of Model Y and the ratio of prices of X and Y are 140:100(7:5)
Since the selling price of Model X is 700$, selling price of Model Y is 500$
Similarly, the selling price of Model X is 35% the price of Model Z and the ratio-Z:Y is 100:35(20:7)
This makes the selling price of Model Z, 2000$

Of the total 210 computer manufactured, 3/7*210 or 90 of the computers are of Model Y.
Remaining models are 210-90 = 120
Half of these are Model X, and other half are Model Z making X=Z=60

Total revenue from the sales of computers is 60*700 + 90*500 + 60*2000 = 42000+45000+120000 = 207000(Option D)

Fractions are better than decimals for percents in this problem

Total revenue = (Price*qty)X + (Price*qty)Y + (Price*qty)Z

Quantities:

\(\frac{3}{7}\) of 210 are Y, rest are equally split between X and Z
\(Y = (\frac{3}{7} * 210) = 90\)
\((210 - 90) = 120\)
\(X = Z = 60\)

Prices:

\(X\) price = \($700\)

\(Y\) price: \(X\) is \(140\) percent of \(Y\)
\(X = \frac{140}{100}Y\)
\(X =\frac{7}{5} Y\)
\(Y = \frac{5}{7} X\)
\(Y = (\frac{5}{7})(700) = $500\)


\(Z\) price: \(X\) is \(35\) percent of \(Z\)
\(X =\frac{35}{100}Z\)
\(X = \frac{7}{20}Z\)
\(Z =\frac{20}{7}X\)
\(Z =(\frac{20}{7})(700)= $2,000\)


Total revenue:

\(($700)(60) + ($500)(90) + ($2,000)(60)\)
\(42,000 + 45,000 + 120,000 = $207,000\)
